Sighting in your expensive new deer rifle

2. Quality, high-powered scope................$ 550.00

3. Bore sighting device............................$ 140.00

4. Hospital Visit......................$ 4,893.00

5. Forgetting to remove the bore sighting device prior to actually shooting the thing?

Priceless









"Life's tough......It's even tougher if you're stupid."
John Wayne

The scary part is that this guy lived...and can buy another gun! Watch out, my friends! He may live on your street...

Now how about some fresh coffee...before this moron reloads!

All I can say is, "Whoa!"

That is very nearly almost unbelievable.

Thanks for the java this fine, snow filled morning, friend Jim.

Did it MY way said...

You can't fix stupid. Waste of a good rifle. Wonder if he would give me the scope?

TEAM HALL said...

HEHEHEHE! Oh man, it takes all kinds!
Thanks for that Jim...although I may need a new computer screen due to coffee spray.

LOL, John Wayne is my hero! That's my favorite quote for my yahoo page. Stupidity is always free, too bad there's so much of it.

HermitJim said...

Hey Mayberry...sad to see such a waste of good gun, huh?

Hey MMPaints...glad you could come by today! Wonder what old John would have thought about the way things are today ?

Hey thanks guys and girls for stopping by!

ANDY & MEL LOWE said...

Hi Jim
Scary

reckon we need more than one pair of eyes in the back of our heads

HermitJim said...

Hopefully this will teach this guy a lesson...I still don't want to EVER go hunting with him!

Thanks for coming by today!

Jennersen said...

Probably a simple mistake . . . Guy to excited forgot one big detail. See somebody like that at the range step in and help them!

I wonder if a simple barrel replacement and headspace check would get the rifle up in order?

Oh and it looks like one of those old Warner Bros. cartoons.

HermitJim said...

Hey Jennersen...you're right! It does look like one of the old cartoons! I guess they got their inspiration from real life, huh?

Thanks for dropping in today!

Missi .... said...

With the number of idiots over here and pictures like that Im so glad guns are not legal for just anyone to own over here ....

I'll enjoy a fresh cup with you and hope this moron moves back to using a water pistol.

HermitJim said...

Hey Missi...glad to have you come by. Looks like the present PTB are going to do there best to make sure guns are hard to come by legally in the States as well.

Thanks for stopping by, Girl!

Wow!

Reminds me of one of my favourite sayings:

'Three things in life you can be sure of: Death, Taxes and Idiots!' ~ Mortus

HermitJim said...

Hey Edain...boy, I'm glad to see ya today! I think you're right about those three things to be sure...

Either way, I'm glad the guy was not killed, and hope he sticks to a less damaging weapon.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

OUCH.

HermitJim said...

Echo that, nephew!!

TEAM HALL said...

Sorry to be back here again Jim, but I just can't help myself. That gun picture just cracks me up! I shared your blog with a whack of Canadians last night. My husband's first words were: "well that won't fit back in the gun case now!" lol
Have a terrific day! Back tomorrow for coffee!

HermitJim said...

Hey Friend...come on back as often as you want! Coffee's always on, and I might even rustle up some tea for those that don't like coffee!

Hubby's right! Might have to have custom made case now!

Dragon said...

Damn!

HermitJim said...

Ain't THAT the truth? Thanks for stopping by!
